Vermilion County is located in an area well favored with material resources and, because of this, was predestined to be an important part in the making of Illinois history. The county lies along the eastern border of Illinois, nearly midway in the state, generally between 40° -41° north latitude and 87° -88° west longitude. It is rectangular in shape, averaging 21.5 miles wide and 42 miles long, with an approximate area of 886 square miles. The following pages present a discussion of the natural resources of this area and a meager report on the struggles of those people involved in its development.
